I read the Starbuck books when they first came out and loved them. This is a good narration. At first I though the narrator's voice was a little to rough and not southern enough. But it grew me. His really did a great job with the battle scenes and with building the intensity through the novel. One mispronunciation irritated me -- I guess I thought the word "quay" was pronounced "key". maybe I have it wrong . . .

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, if he or she were a civil war buff, or just generally liked a good adventure story. It seemed that the descriptions of the specifics of the war went on a long time and became a little repetitive. Best part are the characters and their interrelationships-their motivations.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Probably Old Man Treslow-he had a ton of integrity and grit. All the others had some serious flaws of basic character.
Have you listened to any of Ed Sala’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Just the first book in this series and his work is about the same.
If you could take any character from Copperhead: Ball's Bluff, 1862 out to dinner, who would it be and why?
Delaney-he's sharp, cynical and entertaining.
Any additional comments?
I'll probably eventually listen to the whole series, Cornwell seems to get you hooked on his stories.

Direct and realistic portrayal, and masterful weaving of fiction with real events. Recommended for history buffs,
fantastic story like all Bernard Cornwell, but narrator sometimes has no idea how to pronounce simple words
